*** Making it worse is Ben Small's delivery in the UK dub. You can hear his voice ''breaking'' with this particular line:
--->'''Thomas:''' You CAN'T let him leave! ''This is an '''EMERGENCY!''' ''

** Most of the scenes involving Thomas and the Fat Controller (whether directly or indirectly) feel this way, especially because this is the strictest he's acted in years. The worst one of all, though, is after [[spoiler: the dynamite scene, where the Fat Controller shouts at Thomas and sends him away, not having seen enough to know that Thomas was simply trying to save everyone from getting destroyed.]] It's a gut punch at its finest, because more often than not, his harsh words towards Thomas are mostly justified. His behavior towards Thomas also feels much more strict than towards the other engines this time around, which makes things feel worse still. In fact, quite a few fans, prior to the special's release, expected the Fat Controller to state his intent to sell Thomas and make Ryan the new #1 engine.

* One scene of "Thomas and the Guard/Thomas and the Conductor" has Henry moaning of his poor condition to Thomas, who was very dismissive of the issue, bluntly telling him that he's "[[NoSympathy too fat/slow and he needs exercise]]". Even if Henry isn't seemingly that ill, you can't help but to feel sorry for him after that.

* Gordon in ''Tender Engines'' when he finds out from boasting diesels that all his brothers were scrapped, save Flying Scotsman, and himself. In spite of this awful news, he carries on with his express duties. Serves as a double dose of HeartWarming, as the Fat Controller feels so sorry for him, he arranges for Flying Scotsman to visit him as quickly as possible.

* In "Thomas and the Birthday Picnic", there's Thomas becoming sad after failing to find a perfect place for Dowager Hatt's birthday picnic. It's even sadder when he realizes that he ran out of ideas, thus upsetting the Hatt Family, complete with letting off a low sad whistle.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheGreatRace'':
** The scene where [[spoiler:Sir Topham Hatt tells Thomas he can't take part in the Shunting Challenge due to his accident, and that Percy has to take his place. Sir Topham looks legitimately ''heartbroken'' during this scene, like a parent telling his ill child that he can't come on vacation with the rest of the family. It doesn't help that Percy is worried about competing, and Ashima coming in to say goodbye before they all leave for the Mainland. The scene ends with Thomas alone at the Steamworks looking miserable and heartbroken.]]

** It's no secret to the fandom that Emily is quite a BaseBreaker. However, when she came back to the sheds and found them completely full (as Duck was sleeping there for the time being), one can't help but feel sorry for her. And if that isn't enough, the next night, Duck is there again, and Henry takes up the last berth, leaving Emily outside again. Worst of all, ''no one else pays her any mind at all!'' Honestly, this was just taking the "Emily replaced Duck!" spiel too far.
